Spain bed tax introduced

Holidaymakers be warned Spain has rather stupidly, decided to tax tourists with a nightly tax per person to be paid on checkout.

Spanish Tour operators have expressed disappointment at plans for a nightly tourist tax in Barcelona and resorts in the Costa Brava from November 1.

The idiotic regional government of Catalunia is introducing the tax of between 50 cents (40p) and €2.50 (£2) a night on all overnight stays in Catalonia after months of wrangling.

It covers one to five star hotels, apartments, campsites and rural tourism accommodation and will be collected as holidaymakers check out of their accommodation.

It will be €1.25 (£1) for four-star accommodation in Barcelona and €1 (80p) for the rest of Catalonia, and €2.50 (£2) for five star accommodation.

The tax will only apply to adults and will not apply for more than seven nights. It should also be restricted to two people per room – a maximum of €5 (£4) per night.
